PRLog - Jan. 27, 2012 - January 27, 2012 (Los Angeles, CA) - Daisi Pollard Sepúlveda, the reigning Mrs. Ethnic World International 2012 has been named  Honorary Committee Member for the National Meningitis Association’s, “Give Kids A Shot!” Gala for 2012. Daisi joins the efforts of the National Meningitis Association to bring an end to meningococcal disease by promoting meningitis immunization in kids. Daisi will assist with various planning and coordination efforts leading up to the event as well promote meningitis vaccinations on behalf of the organization.

Diagnosed with meningococcal meningitis in 2006, Daisi has spent the past 5 years  overcoming the physical, emotional and mental damage of having meningococcal meningitis.  Daisi wants to give hope to people like her whos lives have been interrupted and shattered by the disease to rebuild their legacy. “When I was sick I really thought that was the end for me and I felt that all  that I had accomplished was gone but I made it through and I started focusing on how I could use this experience to  make myself better. Meningitis shouldn’t be the end for anyone.”

Meningococcal Meningitis is a form of meningococcal disease, a serious and potentially fatal bacterial infection of the tissue surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Adolescents and young adults are at increased risk of contracting meningococcal disease. Meningococcal disease can be difficult to diagnose in its early stages because meningitis symptoms can be misdiagnosed as viral illnesses such as flu symptoms.  Many who survive meningococcal meningitis are left with serious medical problems including amputation of limbs, severe scarring, brain damage, and psychological problems.

National Meningitis Association
The National Meningitis Association, Inc. (NMA) is a national non-profit charity founded in July, 2002. The primary goal of NMA is to educate and increase awareness of meningococcal disease. The founding members were personally affected by the tragedy of meningococcal disease. NMA’s mission is to educate families, medical professionals and others about bacterial meningitis and prevention approaches to the disease. NMA is focused on raising awareness and protection among adolescents and young adults, many of whom can be protected through education and vaccination efforts.
